    For a profession in English and in daily life, Greek

    For a buisness related profession, Spanish or Chinese

    Isn't it just a continuation of human stupidity that we now don't all use the same language.

    Which might as well now be English.

    The Welsh language is a prime example of the continuation of human stupidity.

    There have been multiple attempts to make a global language like, of example,  Esperanto. But I think languages are very fascinating as it shows the culture of a place which I think's really fascinating.

    Culture is entertaining.

    But culture is also backward thinking.

    cause it is useful to identify endings of words and beggining of words so that you can identify words easier than most people can

    Culture is assumed differences.

    Generally, relative to past events.

    People on one side of a line continuing to assume that they are different to people on the other side of the line, simply based on the previous activities of their dead ancestors.

    Since you seem to like the culture attached to the language, I would suggest the language of the culture you are most interested by?

    But if they're doing what their ancestors were doing then it is different

    Not quite sure what you mean.

    But ultimately everyone has the same ancestors anyway.

    People tend to just cherry pick fairly recently stuff and turn it into culture and assumed differences.
